    1. That’s odd, Lynette. I never saw the old chimney top as a window, but you’re not alone in seeing that possibility. Perhaps, because I saw the place ‘in the flesh’ I knew what it was. But it’s good to know it’s inspired these ideas.

      1. I thought it is a barred window, but when I looked again after reading your comment, I realised that it’s an old chimney. But this is about inspiring the imagination, so a small cell is the space it will occupy for me. 🙂

  2. Tom’s thoughts have merit and agree, but it is good to see what people used to use to build their dream houses. Maybe?
    When I first looked at it I thought of prison because the windows were so high and small. It is interesting that the Terracota tiles are still in one piece unlike those manufactured more recently.

    1. That may be a result of my focussing on a small portion of this building, Brenda. Those ‘windows’ are actually vents from an ancient chimney! I doubt this was ever a dream house. It’s in a back street of Rome, part of a three storey domestic place. The houses here are crowded very close together, forming a tight-knit community.

    1. Now that’s a real illustration of the difference between America and Europe, Tom. This is an ancient building in Rome. Here, we preserve the ancient, keep it as a reminder of our past. I have noticed that in USA it’s common to knock down older buildings and replace them with new places. I wonder what that means in regard to any heritage?

    1. You’d think so, Noelle. This is part of a fairly old building in Rome, some of which has been built using ancient Roman era tiles and bricks. My guess is the building itself dates from around 250 years ago. The tiles and bricks, of course, will be from the decline of the Roman Empire, around 450A.D. So, it’s actually doing quite well!
